Grateful for Mists...

View from our kitchen window - trees and mist...


I am grateful for winter and the excuse to hang out in my trackies and slippers every evening.

I am grateful for winter and the excuse to eat porridge and golden syrup for breakfast with the kids.

I am grateful for mist and the view from my kitchen window - some mornings this week, the ethereal atmosphere created by the mists has lasted until lunchtime at least. It's calming.

I am grateful for Downton Abbey on download so that we have been able to revel in the TV series without the annoyance of advertisments.

The downside of that is that we our internet download is now restricted and we are shaped....which makes me incredibly grateful for our normal lightening speed of internet connection. I now feel like a temporary IT pauper. (Indeed, this post make take hours, quite literally, to publish....)

I am grateful for Al of Pink Fibro fame for her sage advice on a pitch.

I am grateful to Maxabella for the incentive to post, despite speed restrictions.

  7. Porridge is the ultimate breakfast in winter. What a great list of things to be grateful for, minus the slow internet... I know how frustrating that can be! xxx

  15. Mists are beautiful! I love being able to emerge at 11am when it is still misty and feel like I haven't missed half the day!

  16. Totally coincidentally (as I hadn't read this post yet) I admired the mist over my own valley view this morning and thought of you. I think you posted about your mist quite some time ago and I've always felt it connected us somehow.

    ANYWAY, so happy you posted on the mist day to make a coincidence so meaningful. Especially with the speed. x
